  1. Thanks for the reply. I looked for the foxbot set but they seem to be out of stock everywhere. I will check the Mr paint though, wasn’t aware of those, never used their stuff.
  2. I’m back to the Su-24. Going to do a Ukraine example with Reskit StormShadow missiles. I have a set of the digital cam masks but having trouble finding details of the, it looks like 4, greys used. Can anyone point me in the right direction before I guesstimate it based on photos. Thanks
  3. Thanks, I think I know the photo you are referring to. With any luck Reskit will do a targeting pod and I’ll get back to the Su-24.
  4. Thanks for the replies. The closest I’ve been able to find was a photo with some sort of pod on the outer right wing and a missile rail on the outer left wing. Not what I’m looking for though.
  5. Would the Su-24 ever fly with a asymmetric load? Something like a fuel tank on one wing glove pylon and a ‘large’ missile, Kh-31 or Kh-58 under the opposite pylon? I cannot find any photos showing this arrangement on the Su-24. Thanks. Bryan
  6. Finally started mine. Thanks again for the build notes. Between those and this site you have already saved me some aggravation. One question if you don’t mind, do the newer jets have the white ceramic ? panels in the engine nozzles? Thanks Bryan
  7. If it isn’t too late, you can make your own MLG spring by wrapping one piece of fine wire around another piece of wire or plastic strip. Might take a couple of attempts to get it to look right but it does add to the appearance. Bryan
  8. Hello from Ottawa. I used one of Tamiyas grey lacquers over a black primer base cote on my F-14D. With the glosscote on for wash and decals the top grey now has a blue’ish tinge to it. My question is, has anyone ever tinted their final clear flat layer with a compatible grey or possibly Tamiyas smoke to ‘dull down’ or ‘adjust’ the underlying colour? Any suggestions or better ideas? Thanks in advance. bryan
  9. Thanks, I hadn’d considered that. The dog always ate my geometry homework. Looks like a small wedge similar to your photo is the way to go. Bryan
  10. Has anyone tried cutting an angle on the ends of the kits afterburner ducts to get the down and in exhaust nozzle orientation of a parked aircraft? Thanks, Bryan.
  11. I have some very thin photo etch saws, I think they are from Tamiya. You can get them in 2 different thicknesses and There are 4 or 5 on the sheet, just cut them free and fold the handle portion together. They should be easy to find on the Internet.
  12. I have this with some aftermarket bits. I'll be interested to see how it goes together for you.
